It is common to have your child ask for things he wants and when you cannot provide, it could be a difficult task declining his request. Telling your child that you can’t afford something is not encouraged. It is key to teach your child to look past what your present circumstances are, showing him what he could be and how to get there. While every parent wants the best for his child, including providing and buying expensive gadgets that give desired comfort to the child, when these needs cannot be met, a parent should honestly communicate with his child. Explain your situation, and if you can’t afford something, it’s important not to give in to pester power and risk getting into debt.
